Yeah, only giving them 2 years notice is hardly enough warning... except Wada banned it in 2015 and officially banned it 2016. It appears it is used to transport more oxygen to the muscles when used by athletes. Similar to blood doping.

Doping

Assuming the B test confirms that the Russians were running modified instead of stock, two conclusions come to mind:
Norway should get the Bronze.
China should have been in the playoffs. Too late to remedy this.

If the IOC had any cojones they would send the Russians home today.

you would have to be pretty stupid to think more oxygen and muscle would make much differencein curling

in mixed you might be able to jump up and dust the rock a few strokes - knowing that you are doing nothing much anyway on most shots

How does an athlete not know? Norway gets bronze. Bad for China. Probably bad for couple's relationship too. Innocent until proven guilty - but pendulum has swung. #whyCurling?! #OhWhy?!

It helps the body recover quicker after exercise . Could have been in his system from before competition start.

Why why would this story be out when it is subject to confirmation of a second test? Seems rediculous .

I thought all the Russians were tested before they were allowed to compete.....because they were the CLEAN ones.

I read a story where he said he thinks one of the other Russian men who didn’t make the team slipped him something in his drinks at their Japan holding camp just before the event.

I feel sorry for China who got screwed out of the playoffs
